Teknion Launches Kupp, a Line of Café-Inspired Nesting Chairs

Over the past several months, many designers have come to realize the need for agile and adaptable products to accommodate a variety of applications and situations.

In response, award-winning office furniture manufacturer, Teknion launched their latest product collection: Kupp, a series of nesting task chairs, inspired by the classic typology of the café chair. Designed in collaboration with Scagnellato, Bertolini, and Ferrarese, Kupp addresses the need for simple, portable seating in offices and higher education spaces where collaboration needs can change in a moment’s notice.

Designed for multi-use rooms, the lightly scaled chair works best where furniture needs to be put aside, but not necessarily away in storage, including training rooms, breakout areas, collaborative areas, and adjacent to workstations. Kupp’s clean, light look fits within modern spaces, while finishes echo classic and current educational, hospitality, and corporate color palettes.

A fresh approach to nesting chair design, Kupp’s horizontal nesting capability solves constraints and ensures employee safety, as chairs can be stored with minimal physical effort. The strong, slender frame, flip-up seat, and integrated nesting bumper allows the Kupp chair to be easily moved and stowed away without damage.
